I would bet you anything that the diarrhea is just stress from being
moved to a new home. Can you imagine being taken from your lifetime
home and being moved in with total strangers? The sneezing is
probably from being in a new envrionment. Every new ferret that has
come into my home has been through their little sneezing period.

I would just keep an eye on her for a couple of days. She will
probably be just fine. If she starts acting sickly or lethargic, you
may need to act.
